建築史学とは What is Architectural History?


The architect formulates a model of the architecture and the city of the future, which is a part of the history and the culture of the past and the present and creates a new human environment.
The architecture is required to be stable, functional and beautiful and bears old and intimate relationships to our society and tradition.
The architect also is required to synthesize aspects of all the human environment. Furthermore we cannot practice the architecture without artistic talent.
To explicate these facets of building, the historian normally synthesizes information from formal analysis, archaeological investigation, and the study of primary (written or visual) sources.
If we want to know more about the Taj Mahal and its significance, then we need to study the architecture of Islamic northern India, and Persia, from where the architect came.
